Our Work Ending the Use of Animals in Research and Testing In the service of what is right—for humans and for animals—we’re building a world where all animals are respected and protected from cruel and unnecessary scientific experiments. Raising Awareness of Animals Suffering in Laboratories Through our public education and advocacy efforts, NAVS is bringing about positive solutions that will end, once and for all, the exploitation of animals in society. Funding Smarter, More Humane Solutions As an ever-increasing number of scientists across all disciplines are becoming mindful of the inadequacies of animal experimentation, NAVS is leading the way to a new, humane future. Replacing Classroom Dissection Modern, non-animal teaching methods are more effective, less expensive and more humane than traditional animal dissection. It’s time to make humane education the norm. Assisting Animals in Sanctuaries The NAVS Sanctuary Fund is an emergency relief program designed to assist animal sanctuaries—helping animals facing dire situations when immediate intervention is necessary.
